Five years ago Dan asked me to marry him. It was actually December 29, 2005, five years and one day ago, but I didn’t remember in time to post this yesterday. That day we drove up to Big Bear for a few days of snowboarding, but when we arrived in town Dan insisted that we stop at a park on the lake to get a picture of the quickly-fading sunset. Little did I know that he had something else in mind as well! The photo above was taken just before Dan proposed. It was a moment that I’ll never forget. These past five years have been quite the whirlwind, but we’ve made it through together so far. I love you, Dan, and I hope the years just get better and better.
